PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Doernbecher Children's Hospital received a huge gift that will go a long way toward saving lives.

The hospital was one of 10 recipients around the country to receive a special $150,000 grant from the Hyundai Corporation's "Hope on Wheels" program.

A special check presentation was held on Wednesday, and both doctors and patients say the donation will make a huge difference.

"If you come to me with a child with a specific leukemia today, there's a 95 percent chance your child will be cured. And all of that is the result of research, and that's what Hyundai is helping us to do here at Doernbecher today," said Dr. Dana Bramer, Physician in Chief at Doernbecher Children's Hospital.

Hyundai will be donating a total of $7.5 million to various hospitals around the country throughout the month of September.
